    Finding the best winter coats and jackets online is tricky, especially if you're not looking to spend a small fortune. The good news is there are plenty of affordable alternatives to freezing your butt off for the next five months — so who's ready to shop?

    1. A thickened down jacket for anyone whose worst day ever involves schlepping through snow. This deceptively lightweight jacket is windproof and water-resistant so you can play all day without feeling the cold. Plus, the hood is lined with faux fur to keep your noggin warm. And! It has six pockets for holding all your crap so you don't have to worry about snow and sleet ruining your favorite leather purse.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS COAT! I am from Texas and went to NYC and Buffalo, NY, during December because I wanted to see the snow but I was scared that I was going to die from the cold. This coat was so warm! I was wearing a light Nike hoodie under. But still it made the trip so fun where I could enjoy the snow! The hood was so big it made it easy to walk in the snow because it protected my face. I can't believe how warm it was in this coat. And all the pockets made it easy for me to travel with just a carry on. The pockets are huge! Which is a bonus." —sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in sizes XXS–5X and five colors).

    2. A faux fur parka that'll convince you (maybe!) that winter isn't that bad. It's lined with a super soft faux fur so it basically feels like a warm hug, but it's breathable so you won't sweat even if you're wearing more layers than Joey Tribbiani. The drawstring waist is a nice feature if you prefer your coats more fitted.,

    Promising review: "This jacket is amazing!!! The pockets are deep, the hood is big enough for my huge hair, and it's so warm!!! The sleeves are the perfect length for my long arms, and the fabric lining it is cute. My cat and I are both in love with the fur lining; it's crazy soft. It saved my Texas blood from freezing in the Midwest winter." —Tiffany Guerra

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in sizes 6–14).

    3. An expensive-looking Sam Edelman parka to give your outfit designer vibes at a fraction of the price. Thanks to its furry collar lining and faux fur trim on the hood, you can ditch the scarf and beanie, which only make you neck itchy and sweaty and leave you with a case of staticky hat hair.


    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this winter coat (bought the maroon color). I live in New England and it has been perfect for the 20- to 30-degree winter we've been having. It is not too tight, which allows for layering sweaters underneath, but also doesn't make me feel boxy. It also has a massive hood with drawstrings that protects from high winds and snow." —ahaller47

    Get it from Nordstrom for $194.90 (originally $260, available in sizes XXS–XXL and six colors).

    4. A Columbia Mighty Lite Hooded Jacket so you can stay warm whether you're on the slopes or just trying to survive the freezing walk from your toasty car to your apartment. This water-resistant insulated jacket also features an inner cuff and thumb hole so your precious body heat stays trapped in your coat.,

    Promising review: "I purchased this coat specifically for a trip we took to the Canadian Rockies and after wearing it during the cold weather we occasionally encountered, I can say I'm extremely pleased. It was so easy to pack, and actually fit well in my backpack without adding much additional weight (I folded it into a ziplock bag and it came out looking great). The coat is so lightweight but warm, fits well, and also has room for a thin fleece jacket underneath if needed (I didn't really need it but I sometimes had the fleece on already and just kept it on and added the coat as we hiked). It was very comfortable whether I was going up a mountainside in a gondola or hiking up a trail to overlook a beautiful Canadian lake. And, I felt that it looked great. I had no problems with the hood falling down, although it helped that I wore a thin knitted hat along with the hood. The zipper was a little stiff at first but at about three days in it was very easy to zip. I'm looking forward to wearing it throughout our Wisconsin winter, at least until it gets below 20 degrees Fahrenheit." —T. Walters

    Get it from Amazon for $98+ (available in seizes XS–3X and 23 colors).

    5. A fitted down coat with a detachable fur hood that'll make many appearances on your Instagram this winter. It comes with two deep outer pockets as well as one secure inner pocket to protect your phone and keep it nearby in case an Instagrammable moment presents itself.,

    Promising review: "This coat was perfect for my trips to Toronto and Alaska. In Toronto, it was snowing and the temp was between 10 and 25 degrees Fahrenheit the entire time I was there, and this coat kept me super warm. I was outside walking most of the time to get to where I needed to go and I was never cold. It’s also super cute, I love the fur-lined hood! The hood is also quite deep so it’s good for snowy conditions. It was helpful to wear a hat underneath to keep the hood from sliding over my eyes too much, but I was glad the hood was so deep when it was snowing. I definitely recommend this coat for cold conditions." —Theresa

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in sizes XXS–3X and seven colors).

    6. A Cole Haan down jacket so you can channel your winter style icon, the Michelin man, without looking bulky. It's fitted at the waist and features an inner collar so you can huddle inside your coat like a turtle for extra warmth.


    Promising review: "I love this coat. I walk a mile back and forth to work and this has been the perfect coat for keeping me warm in the cold winter months. The pull strings on the hood allow me to tuck inside on a super chilly day. The inner vest style zip up makes me very cozy. It zips all the way up to the chin so I don't need a scarf. If I don't need the warmth I can just zip the outer layer or snap the snaps. The pockets are deep enough to hold my large screen phone without having it drop out. The jacket feels dressy, especially with the elastic cinch waist." —BethJM

    Get it from Nordstrom for $149.90 (originally $225, available in sizes XSP–XXLR and seven colors).

    7. A packable puffer that'll fold up neatly in its own bag so you have room in your carry-on for more important snacks and souvenirs.,

    Promising review: "I am 110% obsessed with this coat! I needed a more professional looking rain coat for work and this is perfection! The fit is great and I love that it fits in a small bag in my purse when I'm on the plane! I also love that it has two zippers so I can have the bottom unzipped for some flair! The zipper pockets are a nice touch as well. I can't say enough good things about this coat, totally obsessed!" —Maggy

    Get it from Amazon for $49.50 (available in sizes XS–XXL and eight colors).

    8. A Madden Girl long puffer so you can stay warm from your head to your (almost) toes. It's cinched in the back, which keeps the fabric close to your body and helps prevent heat loss.


    Promising review: "I was concerned I wouldn’t like this coat, but my worries were wasted. It’s perfect. Cut slim, it has a lovely shape. The fabric looks and feels lux. With both a zipper and snaps, it's secure from the wind. The hood doesn’t flop into my eyes. I couldn’t be happier." —Allison Hatfield

    Get it from Amazon for $84.99 (available in sizes S–3X).

    9. A Calvin Klein mid-length puffer that's so soft you'll want to also use it as a pillow. This sleek little number is great for traveling because you can roll it up into a teeny tiny ball and stuff it inside its pouch. And, most importantly, it's super. freaking. warm.


    Promising review: "This is a sleek-looking coat and it is very warm without being bulky. The arms were long enough for me (I have had issues with shorter arms in the past) and the zippers are very good quality. I have gotten compliments on this coat. Definitely a great purchase." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $80.98+ (available in sizes XXS–XL and six colors).

    10. A 3-in-1 waterproof parka for anyone who loves when clothes are multitaskers. You'll get both the puffer and the shell, which you can wear together or separately depending on the temperature.


    Promising review: "I am so pleased with this jacket! I wanted a 3-in-1 style, but didn't want to pay a small fortune, so I found this one and gave it a try. I can still wear sweaters with it, and get it zipped up fine. It is a bit bulky with both pieces (think ski-coat style), but man, is it warm! I live where it can literally be 10 degrees one day and 50 the next, so having the three options is awesome. The zippers seem to be durable, and zip with ease. You have to turn the puffer inside out to get it zipped into the shell properly — that took me a while to figure out! But, once you get the hang of it, it is easy to get the puffer in and out. It has tabs on each sleeve and at the neck to hold the puffer in place. Only the shell has a hood, and it tightens up so that the wind can't blow it off your head, which is amazing. I also love the color, I got the purple one. I don't really have any negatives about this jacket... the price was great, it is super warm, beautiful color, functional hood, fits great... it's a winner!" —Jessi D.

    Get it from Amazon for $86.97 (available in sizes S–XXL and 10 colors).

    11. A chic collared wool coat that'll add a pop of color to your all-black winter looks. It's practically begging to be paired with suede over-the-knee boots that I have included on every Christmas wishlist for the last five years knowing full well my parents will never get them), a cozy sweater, and a pom pom beanie.,

    Promising review: "I was so excited when I opened this package! It was heavier than I expected, so I started getting my hopes up that the quality was going to be as good as many of the reviews had was! This jacket is truly a much higher quality than I thought it would be! I got ivory with the black grid pattern. It is fully lined, smooth and silky on the inside, soft and warm on the outside. The belt tied nicely and felt secure. The shape and silhouette was fun." —E. Hugh

    Get it from Amazon for $88+ (available in sizes XXS–3XL and seven colors).

    12. An oversized shearling coat for lazy days when you just want to be comfy. Wear it with a sweater, jeans, and boots for a casual look, or dress it up with a fun dress and tights.,

    Promising review: "LOVE this jacket!! I live in Texas so the weather changes on a dime! I can wear this with short sleeves in 30-degree weather and not feel a thing. It’s amazing. Somehow I can also wear it when it’s not freezing outside, as it's not obnoxiously hot as well. I hated zipping it at first because it always got caught in the zipper. Then I figured out you just fold the fur lining back on one side and it zipped right up!" —bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL, available in 15 colors).

    13. An Everlane puffer so you can look chic while helping the environment. Each jacket is made from 100% recycled polyester and filled with 100% recycled insulation, and now I feel 100% less guilty about buying another jacket I don't need but 100% want!!!


    Promising review: "I have never been this excited about an article of clothing! I do not like the cold so I decided that investing in a high quality winter coat would be a good move. I am an extremely environmentally conscious person and this coat met my needs perfectly! I put it on immediately after I received it and my heart was so full! I highly recommend this coat!!" —eb23

    Get it from Everlane for $175 (available in sizes XXS–XL and three colors).

    14. A splurge-worthy, menswear-inspired plus-size wool coat that you'll find a photo of under the definition of "classy" in the dictionary.


    Promising review: "I am very happy with this coat purchase. It has classic lines and beautiful fabric that hangs perfectly and fits true to size. I love that the buttons are reinforced! It is lightweight but very warm and can be worn all winter." —AnnaMary3806

    Get it from Nordstrom for $260 (available in sizes 14W–22W and gray).

    15. A classic wool duffel coat for anyone looking to buy a winter coat that'll last them a lifetime. The toggle closures add some interest to the front of the coat, though there is an inner zipper you can use to zip up the coat. Reviewers also love the deep hood for blocking out wind in the winter.

    L.L. Bean

    Promising review: "I have been wearing L.L. Bean coats for close to 30 years. I have failed to find a coat in any store that can compare to the warmth and comfort of an L.L. Bean coat. I chose this coat as my Christmas gift from my husband since I have long wanted this coat. I ordered up a size in order to allow a thick sweater underneath if warranted. There is plenty of room for this. I especially like how it zips up all the way to the neck and there is a snap so a scarf is not needed. I ordered the camel color and have gotten so many compliments on it. I definitely recommend this coat. You won't be disappointed." —LLBeanFan

    Get it from L.L. Bean for $249 (available in regular, petite, and plus sizes, and four colors).

    16. A cozy oversized fleece you'll never want to take off, because it 100% feels like wearing an ultra soft cloud.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Very warm — like it would be warm enough to use on a normal winter day — and soft too. If you are looking for an oversized jacket order your size because this thing is big." —hayley s

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69 (available in sizes XS–XL and six colors).

    17. A Levi's denim trucker jacket with a soft sherpa lining, because it's a winter staple that'll last you for years. And! It's machine-washable for all you peeps who can't go more than a few minutes without staining your new clothes.


    Promising review: "I finally decided to buy this jacket and I'm so happy I did. I absolutely love wearing denim jackets but hated wearing five or six layers in order to stay warm. With the warmth of the lining, I only have to wear a sweater and a lightweight under shirt." —mpearson

    Get it from Levi's for $128 (available in sizes XS–XL and four washes).

    18. A sherpa-lined jacket that'll protect against windchill. Reviewers say there's just enough room for you to add a thick sweater without looking bulky.,

    Promising review: "I thought long and hard about investing in this jacket. I love Carhartt coveralls and scrubs so I figured I'd like it but shit ain't cheap. Well, I am happy I did cause it is freaking WARM. I wore this during the stupid polar vortex winter from hell in Kansas this past year and it is the only reason I was able to function outside. It is not too bulky so you can still maneuver around just fine. When helping with calving and prolapses I actually had to take it off because I was getting toasty. Speaking of getting super dirty with calving and prolapses, this washes like a dream and comes out looking new! The canvas material is super sturdy and helped me survive a few numb hands needle pokes while working cattle. It is a snug fit around my mid-section but I can layer a hoodie under it just fine. Tons of room to move in the shoulders/arms. JUST BUY IT." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $109.95+ (available in sizes XS–3XL Plus and eight colors).

    19. A leather motorcycle jacket so you can give winter weather the middle finger.,

    Promising review: "If you are planning to wear this in a warm climate, I would warn you that this a thick leather coat. We have lots of wind and snow and I love it for winter, but if you want a lightweight fall/spring jacket, you might prefer a thinner lambskin 'fashion' style. With the thick sturdy leather, I expect to be wearing this jacket for many years." —Book Addict

    Get it from Amazon for $124.99+ (available in sizes XS–5X).

    20. A plus-size Steve Madden maxi puffer, because the cold weather does not play games — and neither do you thanks to its water-resistant outer shell and fleece lining.


    Promising review: "I cannot say enough about the coat!! It's perfect for the frigid Chicago winters where the temp is currently -4 degrees and I was completely warm walking my dog this morning! The fleece lining is not only in the torso of the coat but also in the pockets and the extended wrist guards — total game changer. I ordered true to size and it fits me perfectly, though I will say I have yet to wear it with a super thick sweater underneath so I don't feel comfortable speaking to that scenario. However that does mean I've been totally warm in it with just a T-shirt underneath, which I think is a total win. The zipper (which is a two-way zipper) is also extremely sturdy, which is oddly hard to find at times. My London Fog coat only lasted me one season because the zipper was so delicate. Throw in the fact that the back panel of the coat has zippered sections on the bottom which can be opened to allow for better mobility when you need to bend over, and this coat really knocks it out of the park. Seriously, so happy with it!" —E. Mills

    Get it from Amazon for $87.11+ (available in sizes 1X–3X).

    21. A splurge-worthy plaid wool coat that'll make anyone feel uber posh.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this stunning coat! It's the dream coat I have wanted forever and could never find. The styling is the vintage look I love but with modern fitting that accommodates my arms and big chest beautifully without feeling like I am in a sausage casing. The colors are beautiful and it doesn't feel cumbersome or too heavy to want to take out. I'm tempted to buy another one as a back up just in case this one gets lost or worn out because I love it so much!" —KIRSTIE

    Get it from ModCloth for $149 (available in sizes XXS–4X).

    22. A belted double-breasted pea coat you'll want to twirl in for days. The best part: the material resists wrinkles so you can toss it on your laundry chair without worrying about creases.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely loved this coat!! Size and color were what I expected. At first the coat seemed very fitted, which made me a little weary that I wouldn't be able to layer in -4 degree weather, however, I was comfortably able to do so with a shirt and thick sweater. I managed to stay super warm, even amidst getting caught in transient mini-snow storms and was happy to see fabric remained clean and intact. I also received a lot of compliments, so that was a plus. Overall, great purchase!" —MissRev

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 11 colors and styles).

    23. A lightweight fleece to layer over thermals and under parkas for added warmth. Reviewers say that it's pretty warming on its own and can keep you comfy in 40-degree weather by itself.,

    Promising review: "The highs at Yellowstone while we were there never rose above 40 degrees Fahrenheit and temperature at night was typically below freezing. It was cold, snowy, and windy. I wore this fleece comfortably every day! Most of the time, the only thing I wore under it was a basic long sleeved thermal shirt, and that ended up being all I needed. During the coldest, windiest times, I layered with an additional thin, breathable jacket. I never got sweaty, but I also stayed plenty warm. The fleece was very soft and comfy, and I loved the overall style. The zipper pockets were plenty big enough to hold my phone, as well as a few other things. I got the navy blue color, and was very pleased. I'll be wearing this jacket for years to come! Columbia makes excellent products that don't sacrifice your budget." —miz_cox

    Get it form Amazon for $24.20+ (available in XS–XXL sizes and 48 colors).

    24. A water-resistant mid-length puffer with a removable fur-trimmed hood so you can make snow angels all day without worrying about winter ruining your fun.,

    Promising review: "I live in Montana and it's currently in the negatives right now. Even though sometimes I choose to, I don't really even have to wear sleeves/layers underneath this jacket because it's so warm. I highly recommend this. I've had it for several months now. The buttons and the zipper have held up pretty well." —Lori

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and seven colors).

    25. An attention-grabbing colorful coat for lazy days when you can't be bothered to get more creative than a sweater and jeans. This stunning coat will help you still look put together!


    Promising review: "I saw this coat in the store and fell in love. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a standout winter coat that’s warm and stylish. Can’t wait to wear with a pair of jeans and heeled booties!" —anthro_style

    Get it from Anthropologie for $149.95 (originally $248, available in regular, petite, and plus sizes).
